Strip The " Cotai
Cotai
Strip" is a name dubbed to the entire hotel-casino area, when the term " Cotai
Cotai
Strip" has been trademarked by Las Vegas Sands Corporation, which coined the phrase (USPTO Registration Nos. 4396486 and 4396486 for gaming and hotel services), and only applies to its properties. Galaxy Entertainment Group's Grand Waldo Hotel was the first casino to commence operations in Cotai, opening its doors in May, 2006.[citation needed] The construction of many other casino and hotel projects is currently underway. The largest and most notable property on Cotai
Cotai
so far is Las Vegas Sands' Venetian Macao, which opened its doors on August 28, 2007.[3] Melco PBL Holdings opened the City of Dreams directly across the street from the Venetian on June 1, 2009.
